When I submitted the keyword "chisanbop" to the Math Forum search engine (http://mathforum.org/grepform.html), I found several helpful resources from our Internet Mathematics Library, including ChisenBop (or Chisanbop) - Andrew Harris, Computer Science, Indiana & Purdue Universities http://mathforum.org/library/more_info.html?id=7129 Chisenbop tutorial (A new tutorial by Andrew Harris) http://klingon.cs.iupui.edu/~aharris/chis/chis.html ... as well as the Ask Dr. Math conversations Finger Multiplication: Do you know a method for teaching blind children 'finger math'? http://mathforum.org/dr.math/problems/clarm4.18.97.html Chisanbop: Advanced Counting on Fingers: I saw on TV years ago kids in 1st grade doing advanced math by counting by using their fingers as a kind of abacus... http://mathforum.org/dr.math/problems/harbin3.18.96.html -- Richard Tchen
